Fictional Characters Tag

Type Writer Fictional Characters Tag.jpg

I realize I haven’t done a “tag” post in a while. I saw this tag from Emily at Monster Lady’s Diary and thought it was a great tag, but there were other blog posts I wanted to write first. I’m mostly caught up on those, so here are my responses to the Fictional Characters Tag.

Which Character Was Your First Love?

When I was in third grade, my mom let me watch the James Bond movies. We owned boxed sets with the various Bond films from the different time periods. When I watched each Bond film, I became engrossed in the beautiful dresses, the lustrous travel destinations and all of the action sequences. My love of action films has grown from the Bond movies. As I re-watch them as an adult woman, I realize how truly misogynistic James Bond is. How he treats women as a disposable item and how his love affairs can cost them their lives. The James Bond franchise will always have a special place in my heart because it reminds me of my mom, but also brought me to appreciate the finesse it takes to film an action film.

How Would You Describe All The Characters You Love?

When I become attached to characters from books or any other form of media, I find these characters are genuinely good people. I’m never one to identify with the villains, but the heroes who often have to stand up to evil even though they may be alone in their cause. As I’m re-reading the Harry Potter series, I like to think of Hermione’s S.P.E.W protest as she is fighting for something that’s unheard of and she’s made fun of constantly by Harry and Ron. To me, that’s a character I can support.

A Character You Love That You Think Most People Hate?

Chloe Before the Storm

Life is Strange is one of my favorite video games of all time. One of the main characters is Chloe who’s this selfish teenager dealing with the death of her father. I would say most fans highly dislike her because of her immaturity. I personally like Chloe as a character because she’s a realistic teenager. When my father passed away, I’m sure I acted immaturely to put this image on myself that I was okay. I could identify with Chloe’s struggles of going through puberty along with having her friends move away. The friendship shown between Max and Chloe is one of the main reasons why Life is Strange is such a great video game.

Does One Character In Your Life Have a Strict Personality?

Fangirl

Whenever I think of a character who is “strict” I think of Cath from the novel Fangirl. Cath is very strict with herself as far as what she does in college and who she associates herself with. What I truly love about Fangirl is Cath’s ability to slowly open herself up which connects her with a group of people who love her for being herself. Cath reminds me of my days as a college freshman and how I have grown as a person since then.

A Character I Wouldn’t Get Along With?

Any character that is blatantly racist or despicable would be a character I wouldn’t get along with. The characters that truly anger me the most are the conniving, intelligent villains. When I thought to make a list of what these characters would be, I immediately thought about Lucius Malfoy. His evil has been passed onto Draco, but also how he works with Cornelius Fudge in The Order of the Phoenix to slander Harry is downright troubling.

A Character You’d Travel the World With?

I wouldn’t travel with this one… photo from 2015 at the Doctor Who convention I attended.

The Doctor! Specifically David Tennant or Matt Smith. I could go all across the globe, but even beyond the galaxies too. I really need to re-watch Doctor Who sometime soon.

A Character You’d Rely on To Help You Get Over Your Fears?

Ben and Leslie

Leslie Knope would be my character to help me overcome any of my fears. She would inspire me to chase my dreams and keep my head in the clouds.

Where Do Most of the Characters You Love Come From?

I’m an avid book reader and TV watcher, so most of my characters from this list will probably come from those type of media. If I have time, I do watch movies, but it’s more rare for me to watch a movie than a forty three minute TV episode.

A Character You’re Most Likely to Have Weird Dreams About?

Lucifer

Ooh.. I don’t remember my dreams as far as specific fictional characters appearing within them. I’m really into Lucifer right now and I’m hardcore shipping Lucifer and Chloe, so maybe that would be included in a dream of mine sometime soon.

A Minor Character You Love

Phil Coulson.gif

I counted Phil Coulson as a minor character in the scheme of the Marvel movie universe. He was one of the common links in the Marvel phase #1 set of movies without having much time on the big screen. His untimely death is what brought the Avengers together to battle it out in NYC. Since his revival, Agents of Shield has been successful on ABC. I regret to say I have fallen way behind in the show, but the first three seasons are some of the best TV I have watched.

What Character Represents Your Mentality?

Luna Lovegood.gif

How could I not choose Luna Lovegood. I have her wand on display above my nightstand for this reason. She’s an authentic character who’s extremely quirky and at first not taken seriously. Eventually she proves herself during the Dumbledore’s Army training as she summons her rabbit patronus. She also helps Harry to find the diadem, so he can destroy it. I could go on, but I aspire to be like Luna every day.

Here are the questions in case you’re interested!

  1. Wow, my tag’s getting big! I totally understand where you’re coming from with James Bond. I have only seen two of the films Casino Royale and Skyfall and I completely agree with what you’re saying. All the women dubbed Bond Girls are treated as expendable, they have unusual names too. Bond has an affair with them, then finds out they’re evil and they are killed either by him or die another way. I don’t like action films where the female character serves only as eye candy and the love interest. You could say that’s why I never watched the other films!

    I loved how you picked Luna Lovegood, she’s definitely authentic with her personality, style and how she helps people especially when she persisted in helping Harry with the diadem knowing he wouldn’t be able to do it without her help.
